One Shots: The emperor’s new cosmetics


“Ever had one of those dreams where you’re declared the sultana’s champion at a royal banquet in FFXIV and realize you aren’t wearing pants?” Hirku Two asked.

In game, no. In real life, yes, but just once. At least when you’re in an MMORPG, there’s no shame, because someone out there has a cosmetic that’s skimpier, weirder, or more shocking than whatever you’re wearing. Or not wearing.

Let’s all welcome Ghalesh to the column, who presents to us this iconic World of Warcraft vista!

“Utakata advised me to submit my screenshots here as well. Some life wisdom: The sky is always clear blue, not matter how bad the storm is.”

SmiteDoctor is over in Elder Scrolls Online smiting the smitten with a smiter’s smittocity. Also, there’s a flamey sword thing, so that’s pretty spiffy.

Vincent took us up on a challenge for a fashion faux pas, once again taking us to the realm of FFXIV. Actually, I don’t agree, because this outfit goes with every season, every occasion, and every buy-one-get-two-free chicken nugget meal promotions.

Hikari says, “Expect to see a lot of shots from Swords of Legends Online from me in the future!”

I, for one, am totally fine with that. It’s definitely a fetching game.

Let your latest screenshot masterpieces rip in the comments section! And if you’re up for a challenge, why not post a picture of a natural — but attractive — monochrome palette in an MMO setting.
